St. Nersess Seminary will host the annual Christmas Conference for college students from January 2-6, 2010 at the Seminary in New Rochelle, New York.
Each year American-Armenian college students come to St. Nersess over the Armenian Christmas holiday to retreat, refresh and retool from the rigors and stresses of life together with friends and colleagues. Year after year young people confirm that nothing can match the Armenian spiritual oasis of St. Nersess during the Christmas holidays.
Celebrate the Birth of Salvation
The theme for this year's conference will be Celebrate the Birth of Salvation. "Salvation is not a thing, it's a person," says Fr. Daniel Findikyan, Seminary Dean, who will spend time with participants along with other speakers and presenters. "We will spend some time thinking about what "salvation" really means in the daily life of a college student."
Frank Talk About Real Issues
Christmas Conference participants will enjoy the true joy of the Christmas season, quality time with friends, the wintry tranquility of St. Nersess, prayer, meaningful worship, home-cooked meals, Christmas carols, the crackling fireplace, frank talk about real issues, quality time with God, honest answers and the very best that the Armenian Church has to offer. A day trip to New York City is also being planned.
Led by Fr. Stepanos Doudoukjian, the Christmas Conference is open to college-age men and women. The cost of the program including tuition, materials, room and board is $350. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.
